The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is coming up this Sunday, November 1st. Mission India wants to help believers prepare their hearts with a four-day devotional on Christian persecution in India.

Mission India’s Erik Morsehead says IDOP is a good time for Christians in the West to look beyond ourselves.

“I think with everything going on in our world right now — as we all look to our own communities and with elections and things coming up — it’s always good to take a minute and pause to see how others like us are being treated as Christians around the world.

“This devotional is a great time to take a pause from what’s going on in our own backyard and start to look at what’s happening to Christians in India.”

Christians in India only comprise about two percent of the population, and persecution has gotten worse. Last year was the first time India made the top 10 worst countries to be a believer on the World Watch List.
